Mystery, music and more at Mansfield Palace Theatre this March

Posted onPosted on 23rd Feb

There’s something for everyone at Mansfield Palace Theatre next month.

Crammed full of adventure, mystery and, of course, one or two rather brilliant deductions, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes – Valley of Fear is brought to life in a new stage adaptation on Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 March. A mysterious, coded message is received, a warning of imminent danger, drawing Sherlock Holmes and the faithful Dr Watson into a tale of intrigue and murder stretching from 221B Baker Street to an ancient manor house in the bleak Pennsylvanian Vermissa Valley.

Faced with a trail of bewildering clues, Holmes begins to unearth a darker, wider web of corruption, a secret society and the sinister work of one Professor Moriarty.

The Comedy Store on Friday, 3 March, features comedian, presenter, actor and writer, Stephen Bailey, guitar-wielding satirist Steve Gribbin and emerging Scottish comedian Connor Burns.

A night of mayhem awaits at Phoney Towers on Friday 24 March. Starring award winning comedy impressionist and Britain’s Got Talent star, Drew Cameron, and from the creators of the popular Phoney Horses tribute, this new production is based around the classic TV show Fawlty Towers.

Tribute acts in March include the music of Lionel Richie (Wednesday 8), Rod Stewart (Friday 10), Rat Pack (Friday 17) and Elvis (Friday 31). There is also The Rock of Ages Experience on Thursday 16 and Ultimate 70s on Saturday 18.

Irish-themed shows coming up at Mansfield Palace include Ireland the Show on Thursday 9 March, an all-star cast of Ireland’s most talented singers and performers accompanied by the Keltic Storm band and world champion Keltic Fusion Irish dancers for a show that takes you through the decades of a culture. Irish Annie’s, starring Ricky Tomlinson and coming on Thursday 30 March, is a celebration of Irish culture, from the music to the comedy. It features a live five-piece band, Shenanigans, and an additional cast of five actors/performers.

New Youth Theatre present West Side Story on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 March giving local young people a chance to take to the stage and perform.

Circus of Horrors is back on Tuesday 21 March with their new show, The Haunted Fairground. Set in a decrepit fairground on the edge of nowhere, this new show has lights, special effects and bizarre circus acts, plus a sinister story set to an original rock score.

English new wave and synth-pop band China Crisis take to the stage on Thursday 23 March. They were part of a wave of new Liverpool acts in the late 1970s and early 1980s, led by OMD and also including Echo and the Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, A Flock of Seagulls and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. They had success in the 1980s with ten Top 50 singles and three Top 40 albums.
